"log me in globally" is logging me out in 1.17
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description:
Today I logged into en.wikinews and checked the "log me in globally" checkbox. It logged me out of everything else (here being en.wikibooks, simple.wikipedia, meta and en.wikipedia). I logged back into enwiki then into simple (checking the global login box again), and I was logged out of wikinews again, but not out of enwiki. Is this an isolated problem?

This is probably due to 1.17 running on some wikis and 1.16 on others. I suggest we wait until 1.17 is fully deployed on all wikis and try again then.

@Roan sounds right. Can't reproduce anymore
